Watto's Junk Yard / Re: X-CUTIONER'S SONG
« on: May 8, 2003, 10:54 PM »
This was the major cross over occuring in all the X books back in the mid-late 80's?  If so, I have probably all the original issues involved.  If not, I am remembering something else.  It was tough for me to finish.  Titles were hot at the time and I went to Australia for a stretch (where they hand wrote the price on the cover in ink).  My comic story put aside many of the titles for me, but not all.  

Would certainly make an interesting movie.

Aaaaaaaaaaaargh.  Had to be KB ::)

Nice fine print too.  Save $20 but get a $15 surcharge for large package.  

I ordered mine from a Canadian shop, whose order got delayed.  Not expecting mine until 3rd quarter.  What do I do? ???

Another advantage to living in the US.  The interest on your mortgage is tax deductible.  Mine is not ??? >:(

Cool, someone not born in the 80s.  Not that those born then are bad, they're great.  Just that I was born a wee bit earlier.

Goo Gone.  Nothing works better.  

I usually let it sit on the sticker for a couple of minutes, peels off like it was never there.  No scars, no residue.  

As above, do cleanup the resideu.

Good theory Scott, but not Jesus, Moses.  Sorry I cannot recall the specific book in the bible, but an entertaining version of it can be found in the recent cartoon video Prince of Egypt which is of course the story of Moses.  

As a brief summary, Pharoah went and took all the young male children and threw them to the crocodiles.  I suspect Lucas will be more subtle than that, but perhaps not.  Regardless, it will not be pretty.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: How Is Distribution?
« on: May 8, 2003, 01:57 PM »
Another collector on another board (Canadian) put forward the theory that distribution for current Saga figures sucks so badly because this is a rerun of the last waves of Episode I.  He is under the impression that production has been scaled back due to the switch in card color.  

whaddya think, is he nuts, or not?

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Factory Case of 25th Silver R2-D2
« on: May 8, 2003, 01:47 PM »
There was a discussion of just this sort of auction (case of silver R2) at RS back when this figure first came out.  I recall it coming up for auction on ebay, cheaper than this, but not enough so it sold.  Wonder if it's the same seller.  TRU employee?

I can take some with a dig camera (not great quality) and send it off to someone.  I do not have the capability of posting pictures (no host).  

the greenish tint is there, but boy, not what I was expecting.  It's much more subtle.

Dolls - yes.  I own zero 12" figures.

Unleashed Ewok?  Never, I say never.  I mean come on, are ya gonna hug it while it stabs ya, or what? ;)

Benny and Billy McCrary

Feel free to ask another question.  I have nada.

Power of the Force 2 / Japanese Green C-3PO
« on: May 8, 2003, 11:50 AM »
Anybody have this guy?  Greenish tint body?  

Got mine today.  Happy to have it, but boy, I better be careful to look at the back of the card when I open up my 3POs.  It came in a trade and it was a good deal based on that, otherwise I wouldn't recommend chasing this unless you are a true variant hunter.

Ok, I guess I can see the Jabba.  Classic character, throw in Salacious Crumb and a dancer chained to his dais?  It would make a nice statue, which these are essentially.  

Other Collectibles / Pepsi Bottle Caps / Toppers / Figures
« on: May 8, 2003, 11:34 AM »
OK, do you have any clue what I am talking about?  The pepsi caps from Japan with either the figures or head busts on top?  

Just wondering if anyone collects these and whether anyone has any spares.  I have maybe 30 or so and I think there are 52(?) in the AOTC set.  I wouldn't mind completing my set at some point and the prices seem to have come down.  

I received a Royal Guard and a Plo Kloon today.  They were a throw in with a trade from a friend and it sort of rekindled my interest in them.  I gathered a bunch last summer, put them away and pretty much forgot about them.  

My guess is Adam has a complete set, Cory has some (2 ;D), but who else?

No, not quite free Matt.  Time is money, especially my time.  But, to be fair, I'll give you a choice.  You can either take it at ebay value, or you can take it based on my hourly wage.  Took about 2 hours of sitting there waiting to make my pick.  Your choice :P

I wish I had known about the secret sticker when it was out.  I know I left at least 3 on the pegs.  The only spare I had was traded for a Jorg Sacul.  Sorry guys.  I can try and find more from other people, but not likely to happen :-\
